National Leadership Academy for the Public’s Health is Accepting Applications for its Year 4 Cohort

Today’s context for public health leadership is complex, rapidly evolving, and calls for new approaches to the development of leaders for today and the future. The National Leadership Academy for the Public’s Health (NLAPH) is an innovative approach to leadership development that brings together teams of leaders from multiple sectors to advance their leadership skills, build stronger collaborations, and move toward health equity in their communities. NLAPH is implemented by the Center for Health Leadership and Practice (CHLP), a Center of the Public Health Institute (PHI). The program develops advanced leadership skills through blended learning modalities including a series of webinars, a national retreat, coaching support from national experts, and peer networking. These leadership skills are further refined and deepened as teams work together on an applied health leadership project to improve population health.  Four leaders from different sectors (public, private, non-profit, other) are invited to apply as a team.  Each team must have one member from the local, state or regional public health department.The application for the 2015 cohort is now available online at www.healthleadership.org. All applications must be submitted by November 25 by 5pm PST. The team selections will be announced by December 19, with the one-year program beginning in January 2015.
